Eyelid Lift 01
Procedure: Upper Lid Blepharoplasty, Lower Lid Blepharoplasty (Subcilliary Approach with Canthoplasty) – “Quadralateral Blepharoplasty”
This patient knew of Plastic Surgeon Dr. Weinfeld from a relative who was one of his former patients. She visited with him in his office in Austin, Texas. She initially stated that she wanted an “eyelid lift.” After more conversation it became apparent that she wanted to remove the excess skin from her upper eyelids and smooth her lower eyelids. The patient and Dr. Weinfeld decided the best option for her was a combined upper and lower blepharoplasty (four lid blepharoplasty). Due to the laxity of her lower eyelids she required a lower lid canthoplasty (tightening of the lid) to prevent lid malposition post operatively. She recovered well and enjoys the results. Of note is the fact that Dr. Weinfeld recommended as special diet to reduce swelling and bruising and the patient adhered to it indefinitely following the surgery and has sustained weight loss that can be seen in the photographs.

Procedure: Endoscopic Browlift (EBL), Upper Lid Blepharoplasty, Lower Lid Blepharoplasty (Subciliary Approach with Canthopexy) – “Upper Face Lift”
This patient is in her mid Forties. She was referred by her husband who is a doctor in Austin, Texas and knew Plastic Surgeon Dr. Weinfeld by reputation. She stated outright that she was interested in a facelift but did not feel she was quite ready. Instead she wanted to focus on her upper face first as the next best thing. She wanted to address upper lid excess skin and lateral hooding. With regard to her eyebrows she emphasized that she did not want a “surprised” look. She was more interested in position stabilization and smoothing of the temples more so than significant elevation and shaping. Her goals for her lower lids were to reduce the fine wrinkles and the appearance of “bags.” Following her surgery she has been very happy with the natural and subtle brow lift in addition to the reduction of excess upper lid skin. Most of all she likes lower lid smoothing and the blending of the lid cheek junction afforded by the septal reset and fat transposition. The subtle elevation of the upper malar (cheek) tissue through the subciliary (open approach) yielded benefits in the midface as well, benefits rarely seen with alternative approaches such as transconjunctival lower lid blepharoplasty. It is for that reason that when performed appropriately, the lower lid subciliary lower lid blepharoplasty inherently contains a natural element of upper cheek lift. The subciliary approach to lowed blepharoplasty involves an incision just below the lower lashes which results in a scar that is difficult to perceive. It is a more complex approach to blepharoplasty with which not all Plastic / Cosmetic Surgeons have experience. However, due additional training and experience in Oculoplastic Surgery, Dr. Weinfeld is well versed in this and other advanced techniques for the eyelids, brows, temples, and upper cheeks.
Eyelid Lift 03
Procedure: Upper Lid Blepharoplasty, Open Sky Technique
This patient is a women in her late fifties who wanted to look more energetic, refreshed, and somewhat younger. She started the consultation with Dr. Weinfeld (Austin, Texas) by stating that she did not feel she was ready for a facelift yet and needed a procedure that allowed for a very quick recovery. She identified her upper eyelids as the area of greatest concern. She elected to undergo an upper lid blepharoplasty (referred to as a “upper lid lift” by the general public) with local anesthesia only. She reported the procedure itself and the recovery had far less discomfort than she expected. Given that the procedure was performed under local anesthesia she had minimal bruising and swelling. She returned to work almost immediately after the procedure.
Eyelid Lift 04
Procedure: Upper lid blepharoplasty, Open Sky Technique
This patient is a young woman who came to know Dr. Weinfeld as a patient undergoing breast reconstruction for breast cancer. Due to her positive interaction Dr. Weinfeld she sought a Cosmetic Surgery consultation for peri-orbital rejuvenation. The patient’s primary goal was to correct excess upper lid skin, known as dermatochalasis. After a discussion it was determined that the best solution would be upper lid blepharoplasty. The result has removed the excess skin and eliminated lateral hooding. This was achieved without hollowing out the upper lid thus leaving her upper lid somewhat full, a characteristic of youthful eyes.
